    How to Renew

    All Nevada CDLs must be renewed in person every 4 years at the Department of Motor Vehicles. (Note: The NV DMV will transition to CDLs that are valid for 8 years by July 2014.) Go into your local full-service DMV office and submit the following:

    • Evidence of a physical exam (use the Medical Examination Report).
    • Pay applicable fees (see "Renewal Fees," below).
    • For hazardous materials endorsements, take the hazardous materials knowledge test again and submit to another federally mandated background check (through the TSA: $86.50) if you wish to keep this endorsement on your CDL.

    A new medical exam may also be required.

    NOTE: If you've been convicted of multiple moving violations, you will probably be required to take the knowledge tests again, and possibly even the driving tests. Talk to an examiner at your full-service DMV office for more details.

    Upgrading Your Endorsements

    If you wish to add an endorsement to your CDL or upgrade your license class, you will need to fill out a new Commercial Driver's License Application and pass the applicable knowledge and/or skills tests.

    Renewal Fees

    Fees are payable when you come in to renew:

    • Renewal requiring no test or only a knowledge test: $57.25
    • Renewal requiring knowledge and skills tests: $87.25
    • Added endorsement: $14 plus $3.25 photo fee
    • Drive test to add endorsement: $30 plus $3.25 photo fee
